Foodservice equipment specialists, Caterware Limited, have been appointed to design, supply and install the kitchens throughout the entire Mill Farm complex.
The contract value is in excess of £300,000 and includes equipping the front and back of house areas of Bradley’s Sports Bar, The Café, Milano Mediterranean Restaurant, Churchill’s Banqueting Suites and various other catering kiosks and bars.
Caterware, based locally in Blackpool, also undertook the huge kitchen refit at the Etihad Stadium, home of Manchester City FC and more recently the £200 million City Football Academy Complex, suppling and installing over 1250 individual items of equipment within a ground-breaking multi-million pound plan to deliver an enhanced food capability.
Mark Drazen, Managing Director of Caterware, said: “Even from the initial discussion stages surrounding this project with Mill Farm it was clear that their ambitions were unlimited.”
“There is a genuine intention to create the high quality level of facilities that appear at iconic venues, such as 5 star hotels and restaurants but on a smaller more localised basis.
“The strength and commercial experience of the management team will certainly help lead Mill Farm to huge success.
“As an avid football fan myself, it’s wonderful to see the rapid but measured growth of AFC Fylde, on and off the pitch, and we look forward to being involved with them for a long time to come.”
Bevan Middleton, food and beverage manager at Mill Farm, commented: “Caterware were selected due to their vast experience within large scale stadia and venues, having recently completed many multi million pound projects, throughout the UK.
“Combined with their history of working alongside many well-known high street restaurant concepts and brands, it soon became evident Caterware was the perfect partner supplier.”
